Change Password

When Do I Have to Change My Password?

You are not required by PTHSD to change your password, changing your password is your choice.  The only time you would be required to change your password is when you click the FORGOT MY PASSWORD link on the login screen.  Parent Access would automatically send you an email with a randomly generated password, then when you log into Parent Access with the random password, the system will force you to change your password by walking you through the change password process.
